Rodents have always been the animal of choice for animation studios. This is no surprise as the most famous cartoon character in the world is, of course, a mouse. A fixation that began with Mickey Mouse in 1928 resurfaced in the late nineties with the emergence of CGI in the Stuart Little series and, more recently, Ratatouille, Alvin and the Chipmunks and, the less commercially-successful, The Tale of Desperaux. This time the rodent-roulette has landed on guinea pigs…and secret-agent ones at that.
G-Force is a team of highly-intelligent animal spies comprised of three guinea pigs, a fly called Mooch (who happens to be an expert in surveillance) and Speckles (Nicolas Cage), a technically-gifted mole. The unit is trained by Ben (Zach Galifianakis), the head of a small offshoot research department of the FBI, who communicates with the animals using special language-decoding headsets.
